Calf Creek Arrow

The Case:

An Oklahoma resident discovered an unusual bison skull while fossil hunting in a dry riverbed.

Lodged in the bone was a handmade point our contributor believes dates back to the Calf Creek culture, which lived in the area around 3000 B.C.

Could this be just another hoax or an incredible archeological discovery?

History Detectives heads to Oklahoma and Texas to find out more about this group of mobile hunter-gatherers and to put this handmade point through the extreme rigors of scientific testing.
